. at almost exactly this point in the presidential race of 1956, on october 29th, 1956, with the election that year coming up just a week later, israel invaded egypt. and they did it with the secret support of two major u.s. allies. france and england. it was a fight over control of the suez canal. the american president at that time, in 1956, was, of course, dwight eisenhower. republican. he was running for re-election against the democratic candidate that year, adlai stevenson. talk about an october surprise. that year it was eight days before election day. both candidates are forced to deal with an unexpected and genuine giant foreign policy crisis. >> on sunday the israeli government ordered total mobilization. on monday, their armed forces penetrated deeply into egypt and to the vicinity of the suez canal, nearly 100 miles away. and on tuesday, the british and french governments delivered a 12-hour ultimatum to israel and egypt, now followed up by armed attack against egypt. the united states was not consulted in any way about any phase of these actions. nor were we informed of them

, and it might have struck him vu because five days before the election forgive pat caddell if it looks like a great 70's period with the long lines affecting jimmy carter. could it come back do bite this president? >>pat: it is a question of how were time. there probably is nothing that starts shortening temperatures more than not having electricity and waiting for hours for gasoline and when you cannot get gas for the generators or cars, all this camaraderie, people are human beings and it frays. i believe it is a question of enough time. the president came to new jersey yesterday and said, everything will be fine. that is how people want to believe. now he campaigning. by sunday or monday i would get there are people going, it is not fine. it is not fine. he is out campaigning, i have that gas, why isn't he there? people do caught in want to stay in line. >>shepard: in the states that it is happening they are safe blue states. but how does everyone else feel? >>pat: when they hear the people because they see them on tv saying, why isn't here...the natural thing is, wait i thought he was g
, six days out from election day. the president of the united states, the incumbent campaigning for a second term literally suspend operations on his campaign for 48 hours. the romney campaign has been trying to do the best they can in this situation to not say anything that could be termed inconvenience or challenging. mitt romney didn't mention president obama's name at this point. the stakes that the president is dealing with now, those are strong territories for the obama campaign: delaware, new jersey, new york. the obama campaign was not worried about those states n. a political sense, mind you, but clearly anything the president is doing now, the response to this crisis is being watched by the country as a whole, and when you have president obama in his role as president right now and mitt romney kind of relegated to the sidelines right now as the republican challenger, that is an advantage for the incumbent; however, we'll have to see that on tuesday whether or not this had any affect on this at all. >> absolutely, much more on how sandy is impacting the presidential ele

, republican governor chris christie. just six days out from the election. interesting for many reasons and mostly because chris christie is a top romney surrogate and highly critical of the president in the past but since the storm lavished praise on the president's handling of the storm's wrath. before heading to the jersey shore, the president's made an unscheduled stop at fema headquarters. this is the president meeting with several administration and cabinet persons there. we're told he addressed everyone around the table thanking them for the work and warning that the country's not out of the woods yet. joining us now nbc news political director chuck todd on the phone and ron allen live in point please sant beach, new jersey. todd, i'll start with you. we have chris christie with president obama and others say what else was supposed to happen here? i mean, these men may be from different sides of aisle but we know they're still without power and lost their homes and the other issue still facing the region. >> that's right. we are here in atlantic city. he is up in the chopper wit
on the economy right before the election are not encouraging for the president. good morning, everyone. do you want gas? in the new york area, you will have to wait for hours, you want power? millions will wait for days, but it's the supply of gas that is today's crisis. driving to work will be almost impossible for millions. piled on top of the mass power outage, the whole nation's economy will surely take a hit. new numbers today, paint a grim picture on employment and it's a snapshot of the economy which remains weak. the latest fox news poll shows a dead heat and the candidates are tied five days to the election. we are we go. another big day. "varney & company" is about to begin. he loves risk. but whether he's climbing everest, scuba diving the great barrier reef with sharks, or jumping into the marke he goes with people he trusts, which is why he trades with a company that doesn't nickel and dime him with hidden fees. so he can worry about other things, like what the market is doing and being ready, no matter what happens, which isn't rocket science. it's just common sense, from td amer
virginia, the governor resumed his message that he is the change candidate. this election, something he started before the storm. >> if the president were to be re-elected, you're going to see high levels of unemployment continue and stalled wage growth, if any wage growth at all, just like we've seen over the last four years. >>> and we're also getting a look at a new round of battleground polls all showing the president leading or running neck and neck with governor romney. in iowa the president is ahead six appointments among likely voters. he had an eight-point lead earlier this month. in wisconsin, the score is 49-46. the president's three-point lead there is just within the margin of error. look at new hampshire, the governor romney has cut the president's lead to just two points. the governor was down seven before the debate. let me bring in our political panel for this thursday before election day. nbc news senior political editor, mark murray.

're going to have to come back after the election in a lame-duck session anyway, try to figure out what to do about that fiscal cliff. they would probably fund fema in the interim. republicans are going to insist that any funding of fema over and above what is planned is offset with cuts elsewhere. so basically, we could be looking at the same old story here, steve. >> hey, mike, it's krystal. we know the president's back on the campaign trail, but he and his administration are in constant contact with the fema director, correct? >> reporter: right, we heard from jay carney, we can hear him from 35,000 feet in the briefing room, it is piped in as he briefs a pool back in the press corps back on air force one. he says the president has been in regular contact with the administrator of fema, craig fugate. he talked to him on the phone today. the president, in carney's words, trying to ensure the bureaucracy and red tape is kept to a minimum. carney also pointing out that the president is going to be convening conference calls with local officials. the president has declared states of emer
